I posted a bunch of ideas in this forum area the other day, and have decided to pursue the "Community farm/craft/resource distribution research" as being really interesting, dynamic, and the most apropos for the area near me.
This thread: http://technicity.osu.edu/technicity-matchmaker/considering-community-farm-craft-resource-distribution-partner has related discussions and details. If you might be interested in partnering up, let me know soon. : - )
I might have some adjunct research related to the other projects I posted that would potentially support this well (meshnet, reddit, etc.) and would be pleased to partner to some extent with any such related efforts for those who might prefer to extend one of those ideas.
